Further information about planning in our area

Individual Planning Applications

The town council aims to review all planning applications which are made in our parish and submit our considered comments to Milton Keynes City Council which is the Local Planning Authority. The town council is not a planning authority and Milton Keynes City Council does not have to agree with our views although it does have to consider them before it decides to grant or refuse planning permission.

The town council’s comments on proposed developments are made on behalf of the whole community and must be relevant to national and local planning policies and the legal framework for decision making.

Planning applications are reviewed in Full Council or the Planning Committee meetings and members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings to observe decision-making, to contact and to submit written representations to the town council or to speak during the public speaking time at council meetings.

Please visit the Milton Keynes City Council's Public Access System to access planning applications in the local area.

 Local Development Plan and Regeneration

The town council also aims to influence the planning policies of Milton Keynes City Council especially those contained in the local development plan (Draft Plan:MK, Local Plan and Core Strategy etc). This is undertaken by participating in consultations on behalf of the community and actively advocating for the community on issues such as location of housing, joined up infrastructure and homes, completion of the east/west rail link, the development of an Oxford-Cambridge expressway and development of the town centre among others. The town council recognises that existing facilities within Bletchley need investment and regeneration and the town council is working with Milton Keynes City Council and others to promote and support positive redevelopment. 

Planning applications are reviewed in council or committee meetings and members of the public are encouraged to attend these meetings to observe decision-making, to contact and to submit written representations to the Town Council or to speak during the public speaking time at council meetings. You can contact the town council by calling 01908 649 469 or by emailing info@bletchleyfennystratford-tc.gov.uk

The Towns Fund aims to improve the economic sustainability of towns with a focus on creating jobs, supporting town centres, boosting businesses and connecting people to where they live and work. The funding will support the delivery of a number of key projects that will help to bring major improvements to the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford area. More information on the Town Deal is available on the Groundbreaking Bletchley and Fenny website.     

Neighbourhood Plans

There is currently one adopted Neighbourhood Plan in Bletchley and Fenny Stratford. Following a referendum the Lakes Estate Neighbourhood Plan became part of the Development Plan for Milton Keynes in October 2015 and is used alongside the Local Plan and Core Strategy when considering development proposals within the area covered by the plan. Policies in the Lakes Estate Neighbourhood Plan have informed planning decisions for the Lakes Estate, including regeneration. The Lakes Estate Neighbourhood Plan will be refreshed at a later date.

You can find out more about the new proposed Neighbourhood Plan for the rest of our area by visiting the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Neighbourhood Plan website.
